Healthy Weight Loss & Nutrition Tips. Calories Matter

In order to lose weight, you MUST eat fewer calories than your body normally uses in a day. Calories are the amount of energy stored in the food you eat and the number of calories can vary from one food to another. Eating more calories than your body needs can lead to lead to weight gain. This is because extra calories are converted into fat and stored in the body (like belly fat).

Did you know that a pound of fat is about 3,500 calories? To lose 1 pound of fat in a week, you need to reduce your consumption by 3500 calories (i.e. 500 fewer calories per day). You can also “burn off” the extra 3,500 calories by rigorous exercising. The best way to lose weight is by eating fewer calories and remaining active. For example: If you cut 250 calories from your diet each day and exercise enough to burn off another 250 calories, it can add up to 500 fewer calories. Do this for 7 days and you can lose 1 pound of fat in a week.
As we age, the concept of nutrition becomes harder to grasp despite learning about it in high school. I believe this is because FOOD has become so closely intertwined with every aspect of our lives that we don’t seem to realize when we are excessively indulging.
FACT: Food is fuel for the body. The quality of fuel (food) intake determines the way we LOOK and FEEL.
Furthermore, there are various food groups which make up our diet. We will outline them so that you can monitor and create a diet plan that is suitable for you.

Main Food Groups:
Carbohydrates – Foods that provide energy to our body
Carbohydrates are foods that provide energy to our body. They are also known as starchy foods. They provide our body with the necessary fuel for all physical activity and for proper organ function. However, some kinds of carbohydrates are far better than others.
Good Carb Examples: Potatoes, Rice, Oatmeal, bread, pasta etc.

Protein –Foods to make you grow
They are the building blocks of our body and are essential for tissue repair, cell formation and making antibodies for increased immunity to diseases.
Examples of protein: meats, beans, and nuts
Fats – Food that is stored in our body for energy
Fats are important for cell growth and development. Good fats can be found in nuts, fish, and seeds. Examples of food which have bad fats include ice cream, cheese, and butter.
Use of terms such as “Low Fat”, “reduced fat” or “Fat-free” are used as marketing gimmicks for products which aren’t actually healthy. What they do is that they compensate for the reduced fat content by using other unhealthy components such as sodium/salt for taste.
Vitamins –‘Glow Foods’
Vitamins are essential for all types of chemical processes within our bodies which create and require energy. These include digestion, elimination of waste through faces and urine, cell regulation and development etc. Hence, they can protect our body from various illnesses and make our skin glow.
Examples: Fruits and vegetables.

Water -I’m adding a new food group to this list as it is essential for keeping our bodies hydrated.
Water is life and is extremely underrated –you should drink at least eight glasses of water in a day.
Now that we have discussed the various food groups, let’s outline the ways in which you can eat healthily and cut back on your calories.

Reducing Calorie Consumption

1. Make better decisions about what you eat by paying close attention to nutrition information labels found on food items.

2. Eat 4 to 5 smaller meals a day, instead of 2-3 ‘BIG Meals’
Ever wonder why a new born baby is fed every 2 to 3 hours? Perhaps that’s the same frequency he/she received nutrition while in the mother’s womb, until he/she was introduced to society’s “feeding clock” of 3 meals a day.
Eating smaller and healthier meals throughout out the day can keep you energized. It also ensures that there are no extra calories which your body can ‘store’ as extra weight. This can also increase your metabolism since you’re providing nutrition toyour body on a regular basis.

3. Eat the heaviest meals during the earliest part of the day and lighter meals as the day progresses.
Eating a large and unhealthy meal for dinner is not a good idea. This is because the food can be stored as fat and slow down your metabolism.

4. Consume meals that are high in proteins and not carbohydrates. Avoid items like alcohol, cookies, ice cream, fried foods etc. Watch what you eat and when you eat it.

5. Water – drink as much as you possibly can because it helps increase your metabolism.

6. Get physically active. Don’t over complicate it. You can simply start by walking 20 minutes 4 times a week and progress over time. If you like running, keep at it but make sure you’re doing it right for weight loss. Learn my secret for fat blasting when running by reading this Blog http://janemukami.com/running-vs-sprinting/

Doing the above will help you start eating healthy without the need for stressful dieting. Eating clean is sustainable and helps in keeping your habits consistent while still contributing towards weight loss. Many people eat anything, at any time and in large quantities which is extremely unhealthy. Hence, it is important to watch what you eat.
‘We eat to live, and not live to eat.’

Changing your diet is a MUST if you are SERIOUS about losing weight and being healthy!

      you need to focus on changing your eating habits for a long period of time. It takes a long time to get a flat belly so please be patient with yourself and focus on good nutrition. Lemon was and detox are only small changes. Follow the guidelines i’ve provided above to make even more changes.

      Eating the right foods has been quite a challenge to me. Because Its like for a long time i entertained an addiction to certain foods eg cake and fries but slowly i started reducing the portions of the unhealthy foods. And something very important i learnt from the 21 days group is to start doing something and try maintain it for at least 21 days so it becomes a habit. Wheat is no longer an issue as it used to be. Through Jane I’ve learnt to train my body to adapt to certain habits like the no wheat challenge, drink more water and no carbs after 3pm. I’m greatful Jane.

I have incorporated home workouts, Youtube is bae but I love skipping rope. I have also incorporated ab workouts in my regimen. I love how my tummy has shrunk and my dresses fit better. On Sundays you will find me trying on my dresses as part of my motivation. I feel lighter and love the way those dresses feel clinging on my body! Enough motivation to keep going!

    Every journey begins with a simple step. Working out for me came out to be so passionate and not a chore as for some people. Take alot of water, eat healthy, enjoy the process. Think of it as a permanent lifestyle shift you’re making. I started my journey a month ago and I’ve seen alot of improvement since I go to gym and eat healthy.

    Balance is key. In everything you do.

    Thank your Mukami for your daily motivation.

    Thanx for sharering with us this facts about fitness and eating healthy by reducing carbs and focus more in protein , veg and fruits. My self I did the ten days detox two times by following the exactly description and measurements but I didn’t loose even 1kg, I was frastruated without knowing what went wrong. Iam trying my best to know more about my body so I can focus on loosing more kgs.

    As a fitness guru I want to know more about this Ketogenic diet.
    They say you put in more fats to burn fats.
    Is it working for all blood groups or for some people this one is not for them. My blood group is 0
    I will be delighted to hear more from you.
    Thanx again

      Not all body types lose weight on the scale. The scale probably didnt move BUT your clothes fit lose…you lost inches. ALL body types dont work the same. I’m similar to you and for this reason i never weigh myself instead i check my measurements (bust, hips, wait) or how my clothes fit. The scale catches up much later. Personally i dont recommend Keto because it’s not sustainable. When you eliminate carbs from your body and instead rely on ketone bodies for energy long term when you decide to revert to carb consumption you gain all the weight back…instead do research on carb cycling. i think its a better alterntative than keto. I dont subscribe to blood group diets either….our ancestors lived healthy long lives without knowing what blood groups they were….what they all had in common was different eating habits and lots of physical activity 🙂

    Thank you so much for the information but my question is I have lost inches from waist,hips burst and arms but my weight is the same

    • Jane Mukami November 8, 2017 at 6:49 pm - Reply

      Ann great question! Some body types, such as mien and yours, the weight on the scale takes time to catch up because we naturally retain a lot of water in our bodies. For people like us then we cannon afford to rely on the scale but on the measurements, eventually the scale catches up but until then focus on the inches.

    Information is power. Nutrition is my weakness especially with my huge appetite that doesn’t get affected by moods, illness or anything.

    Great Nutrition post.

    Is it advisable to maintain eating heaviest meals during the earliest part of the day and lighter meals as the day progresses if you are expectant? Or how do you supplement the extra calories required for the baby’s nutrition without necessarily ‘eating for two?’

    Thanks.

    I have been a secret follower of your 10 day body detox program and 21 days of change group. I have been following the guidelines from the 21 days of change group i.e. drinking not less than 2L of water a day, eliminating wheat, sugar and junk, been eating more fruits and vegetables and i work out 4-5 days a week, interchanging between cardio and weight training..i have so far lost 15kgs from 72 to 57 kgs and still working to lose some more because I’m short (150cm), trying to achieve a healthy BMI. I have also religiously done the detox twice this year and that too has helped me boost my energy and helped me kick off the cravings( i mostly crave for salty junk foods-burgers, crisps, pizza). Thanks Jane for those 2 groups that have helped me learn how to live healthy. Looking to start on the eat lean get lean program. Stay blessed!

    Thank you for this. Sometimes it’s hard to eat more than 3 times a day, would you recommend intermittent fasting which enables an individual to fill there daily recommended calories in a specific time period, more so if it doens’t affect there energy levels and they still remain productive and active?

    • Jane Mukami November 11, 2017 at 2:23 am - Reply

      quantities might be your issue. Try reduce your quantities and train the body to anticipate at least 3 meals a day. IFing doesn’t work well for everyone

    Hi Jane. God bless you for sharing your journey with us and for your consistency. I have been on diets since I was 12 years old- and the worst part about it I thought I just didn’t have the self control to master the weight thing. I can’t wait for a time in my life when I am no longer on diet. I like the “new language” you have given me on eating clean and keeping active. I recognize that I must embrace a new lifestyle. I still feel I am on a weight loss program on not yet working on a lifestyle- how can I shake this attitude off? I understand to well the yo-yo syndrome, my wardrobe spans from a size 14 to a whopping size 22. Am I an addict to food? As I get older, I also have health concerns- picked up a calcaneous heel spur from jogging (I think) and a back-ache that is not resolving 1 year on from occupational hazards- sitting at a desk all day. You are a light shining in this darkness. Every time I worry about health, fitness I remind myself that the birds of the air do not concern themselves over such things. But how can the short term motivations (re-set, Christmas, etc) stop so I have a “life in abundance”.
